How to Choose Your Crystals

“How do I choose a crystal that’s right for me?”

This is a question we receive a lot at Gaea and it is quite understandable. It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed with the variety of beautiful crystals out there. We get you! Here, we give you two methods to help you find the crystal that’s meant for you.

Lean In

A great place to start is to look deep inside yourself and identify the issues you need to address or goals you want to achieve. All of us have areas in our lives that we would like to develop or improve. You might want to enhance your creativity, hope to find the right kind of love or possibly aid a chronic illness.

Ask yourself the following questions:

1. Which areas of my life are the most challenging or problematic?
2. What aspects of my life do I want to enhance?
3. What are some recurring issues in my life?
4. What do I need to grow as an individual?

These questions will help you determine your personal setbacks and goals. From there, you can focus and pinpoint crystals that target them. Are you working towards self-growth and transformation? Are you trying to live a healthier lifestyle? Different stones can act as tools to help you manifest your intentions.

Trust Your Intuition

We’ll let you in on a secret. From years of experience and observation, it seems to be true that you don’t really get to choose your crystal – it chooses you!

So take a look around the shop, browse online without any expectations, and be mindful of the crystals that naturally attract you.


When people visit our shop, we’ve noticed that many are instantly drawn to certain crystals while looking around and trying them on. Sometimes, they say they’re simply attracted to the color of a crystal and other times, they feel an unexplainable pull towards a stone after holding it.

The surprising thing happens when they start reading more about the crystal. Often, they find that the crystal’s metaphysical properties resonate with their personal issues, intentions, challenges and goals. This Aha! moment feels quite magical and is always amazing to witness.

Ultimately, there is no right or wrong way to choose your gemstones. Relax and let your intuition and personal intentions guide you. The crystal that calls out to you may not always be the most sparkling one in the collection but you will find that it will be the most beneficial to you at that point in your life.
